I use sealed acid-lead rechargeable utility batteries that are used in children's toys, with a lead and a 5.5mm x 2.1mm male end. This is portable and will run my camera for days. These batteries with the same lead will also run my USB hub, my camera, and my mount. With a similar 12 volt adapter, I can also power my lapy (12v to Dell). I hope that this can help.
That's very interesting, Richard.
I've been looking for an alternative solution to powering my camera without mains supply.
Could you post a picture of your set-up? Is it a large battery?
